Okay, I appreciate all the input that on this site.

I've searched this site for iPhone 3G to see if Greenpois0n RC 5 works on an iPhone 3G, and I've gotten conflicting information.

The initial list of compatible devices in the Readme file does not list the iPhone 3G. There have been many posts here saying that Greenpois0n won't work on an iPhone 3G, however, there are other posts saying that they've succesfully used Greenpoison to Jailbreak their iPhone 3G.

From what I've read so far, it looks like the people who tried Greenpois0n on their iPhone 3G have reported problems related to the PC operating system, and not Greenpois0n itself.

Can someone clarify this? [Greenpoison compatible with iPhone 3G]

Also, I will be Jailbreaking an iPod Touch MC version. Other Jailbreak methods made a clear differentiation between iPod MC and non-MC versions. Does Greenpoison RC5 work on all iPod Touch 2G whether or not it is an MC or non-MC version?

Thanks in advance for any replies...

iPhone 3G is jailbroken for life using the latest applicable redsn0w (0.9.6rc8).

Greenpois0n will work with iPod Touch MB or MC, but MB version can be jailbroken using the latter redsn0w. Currently, iPod Touch 2G MC models running on iOS 4.2.1 can only be jailbroken with greenpois0n. (If you happened to have had an iPod Touch 4G and 4.2b3 SHSH saved you could also use jailbreak monte, but that's not applicable in your case).

I have a 2G MC model and after jailbreaking it with greenpoison it doesn´t appear the loader application so it is not possible to install cydia. Not even with redsnow as you may know.
